D-Link has extended its switch portfolio with the launch of its new D-Link DGS-F1210 Series Smart Switches.
This follows on from the success of its initial range of Unmanaged PoE Switches with Long Reach PoE technology. The four new additional Smart Managed models offer 8, 16 and 24 PoE+ Ports, with Long Reach and Extended PoE capability, to supply 802.3af/at PoE and connectivity on Ethernet cables up to 250 metres long.
The new DGS-F1210 Series of Smart Managed Switches also provide an advanced feature set including VLAN, LACP, RSTP, MSTP, ERPS and more. There’s also 6KV surge protection for connected devices and an easy to manage web-based GUI, as well as the option to use the full CLI interface if required.
The DGS-F1210 Series is a diverse group of clever Gigabit Long Reach PoE Smart Managed Switches. With a wide variety of port options users can provide power for their PoE powered devices including IP Cameras, CCTV devices, VoIP Phones and Wi-Fi Access Points. D-Link has thoughtfully offered a range of Switches that will suit almost all types of customer requirements, including a 24-Port Gigabit Ethernet switch with an extended PoE budget of 380 Watts.
The switches are also enhanced with 6KV surge protection which effectively protects each Switch against sudden electrical surges caused by events such as lightning strikes or unstable electrical current. The built-in 6KV surge protection also significantly reduces the chances of any connected equipment being damaged from electrical surges and effectively lowers maintenance costs by minimising the need for expensive equipment repairs or replacement.
Another valuable safety asset is the DGS-F1210 Series’ Mission-Critical Resiliency as it features sub-50ms recovery thanks to its Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) capabilities, while its Spanning Tree Protocols (STP) enable alternative paths for Layer 2 failover. Link Aggregation (802.3ad) and Quality of Service (QoS) with Weighted Round Robin (WRR) are also enabled, so that VoIP and IPTV applications run smoothly and seamlessly. The network OAM also helps enable service providers to fulfill their Service-Level Agreements and provide carrier-grade service.
The DGS-F1210 Series employs robust security as it maintains strict control over network access thanks to IEEE 802.1X port/host-based access control, VLANs and RADIUS authentication, enhanced by IP-MAC-Port Binding at the user level. Loop Protection guards the network from broadcast, multicast and unicast flooding, while Access Control Listing (ACL) bolsters network security without sacrificing Switch performance.
The DGS-F1210 Series is particularly stable, even under pressure, as it boasts a host of critical features that enhance reliability. With support for PoE, connected devices can be powered in remote locations where an electric outlet is difficult to access making deployments much easier. Should power related issues occur there are also capabilities such as a PoE Watchdog, in addition to its 6kV surge protection, on all Gigabit Ethernet ports and cable diagnostics for quick troubleshooting. This makes for all around lower operating expenses.
Like D-Link’s other Smart Managed switches the DGS-F1210 Series offer a range of essential and advanced features that help to ensure networks run 24/7. The web Interface is particularly easy to navigate and user-friendly making these new Switches simple to configure. As a result, administrators can save time, effort and money.
